It is a Campiglossa, but the genus needs a revision and most species are very difficult to ID...

Very nice shot with clear wing pattern.
ID is probably a slam dunk, if you can find a wing pattern chart. (There's one for us Californians, but it doesn't include the candidate genus, which looks good to me.)

Fruit Fly
Based on the wing pattern, my guess is that it might be in the genus Campiglossa, but it's only a guess. I don't know much about fruit flies.

 
I agree
Thanks for the idea. From what I’ve found after reading your suggestion of Campiglossa Sp., I agree that this is very likely. Unfortunately, it is a large genus. The ITIS database lists 188 valid species in the genus Campiglossa. To my eye, the wing pattern of Campiglossa difficilis looks very close but not exact. I can’t find any photos for most of these species.
